Wilton became famous for its carpets many years ago but the Wilton Royal Carpet Factory eventually closed its doors in 1995. Today the Wilton Shopping Centre opposite the Garden Centre occupies much of the original site. Salisbury is four miles further down the valley and Stonehenge about seven miles to the north.
Wilton is an ancient and historic market town occupying the site of a former Saxon monastery where the rivers Wylie and Nadder meet. Once the capital of Wessex the town declined in importance with the rise of Salisbury four miles to the east. Wilton House, the ancestral seat of the Earls of Pembroke, has beautiful landscaped gardens.
Pembroke Court is almost opposite the beautiful parish church of St Mary and St Nicholas built in the Italian Romanesque style. This church replaced the medieval church of St Mary the ruins of which can still be seen in the market place.
Wilton remained the administrative centre of Wiltshire until the 11th century and was a prosperous market town until the building of Salisbury Cathedral. Wilton Abbey founded in the eighth century, was surrendered to Henry VIII's commissioners and much of the estate was granted to the Earl of Pembroke who built Wilton House. Much of the house was destroyed by fire in the seventeenth century and rebuilt. Today it stands in beautiful gardens spanning the River Wylye with the main entrance just east of the market place.
Facilities : These include a resident manager, communal lounge and conservatory, an attractive guest suite, landscaped gardens leading down to the River Nadder, laundry and alarm and intercom system in each apartment. Parking is in the central courtyard.
Wilton lies about four miles west of Salisbury just off the A36 which connects with the M27. Southampton is about sixteen miles away. Ringwood is about twenty miles and Shaftesbury sixteen miles. Fast trains from Salisbury to London (Waterloo) take about an hour and a half.
